Description

This course provides a rich foundation of the history, diversity, and contemporary issues of the Pacific, including the diaspora of Pacific communities. Students will learn about Indigenous Pacific epistemologies, world views, cultures, knowledges, identities, and experiences. Students will also explore key Pacific structures, systems, cultures, and societies in the changing modern world. Pacific agency, the transnationalism of Pacific identity, and critical contemporary issues of sustainability and innovation will provide essential knowledge for students who want to explore further into areas of inclusion, diversity, empowerment, and positive transformation.
